Leave Starship alone: If you don't like what is being sold in a store then stay out of it. Starship is not my store choice so therefore I don't go in it. Others like to shop there. Why do people have to always try to start trouble?

Sex change: If men could get pregnant, women would have to learn how to kill spiders, parallel park, and get to places without stopping to ask for directions.

Define 'qualified': Is someone who has no clue what the issues are, or the facts underlying them, but who will vote for whomever someone in authority tells them to vote for, really a 'qualified' voter?

Keep anonymity: The problem with linking comments on the Times Herald articles to facebook accounts is that people lose the freedom of anonymity and won't feel comfortable commenting.

Dear 'Make it easy 2': Without photo ID, how will the workers at the polls be able to know that the person in front of them is the person he or she says he/she is?

No respect: Today many young people have no respect for their elders or their parents and often resist authority when questioned. I believe Trayvon copped an attitude with George Zimmerman and was the aggressor and that forensic evidence proved that.

You support everything: Good morning to you degenerate editors. There were specific perimeters given to the owner to get a license and he has overstepped those guidelines. Starship and its products are a blight to our community. If you support his right to sell pornography then you support gay marriage, abortion, homosexuality, etc. and why not crack and marijuana?

Make up your mind: Conservatives want the government out of our lives, except they want the government to tell us who we can and can't marry, and to tell a woman what she can and can't do with her body.

Let it be: Thank you for the editorial, 'It's A Bird. It's A Plane.' Really, what do people think they sell. If you do not like the fact they are here, do not shop there and certainly do not give them free publicity. I almost forgot the store was here until all this publicity.

Inked up?: I didn't realize having a tattoo meant being 'all inked up.' There are subtle tattoos that have symbolic meanings for people and can be easily covered. As for tattooed people regretting their decisions to have it done, absolutely those people are out there. - just as there are people who regret other life decisions.

About that tattoo: Yes, 'tattooed and pierced' has a job, and no, it's actually not a tattoo parlor. Was that an attempt at sarcasm? I'm actually a teacher and a darn good one at that. I would challenge anyone to find someone who dedicates more time, energy, and effort into his/her classroom as I do. Just because someone has a tattoo and is pierced does not mean he/she is a bad person. Be a little more open-minded.
